Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Been busy making planer shavings lately. Lots of fairing to get the barrel looking right. Think it is decent now, so the sub-deck is in place :)

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Things are a bit slow with the boat-building these days, but have at least managed to get some color on the inside of the hull.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Hi Lee,

I had the same issue with the used strut that I bought. I ended up putting it in my workshop press, putting some pressure on the bearing while tapping the strut with a small hammer. A bit scary when it comes loose, but worked fine for me.

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Big day today - started the engine for the first time! It’s a NOS engine, so had to un-stick some sticky fuel pumps (nothing happened when I tried to prime them). When they were back in service, it started at once, although it’s 20 years since it left the factory 😎 Sounds good too, I think. Hopefull...

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Thanks for the kind words Barry! I used the MCW#23 Honduras Brown Mahogany from Lockwood (as mentioned in the other post this is a water (and alcohol) soluble dye powder in their "Metal Complex" range). I mixed it in a ratio of 30g/l (so 0.5oz/pt in imperial measurements). Before applying the dye, I...

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Thanks Matt! I think the dye makes the grain show really well, and doesn’t could it up at all.

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Thanks Ken! I’ve used a water based dye, from W.D. Lockwood on the outer layer of mahogany. It’s one of their “Metal Complex” dyes, which are supposed to have a very good lightfastness. For now it’s only a couple of coats of epoxy on top of that for protection. When the deck is done I will add a few...
